More from Celso at the YTSO

You may recall an earlier post in this blog titled Half and Half about Celso Garcia Blanco, a young guitarist from Spain playing the guitar half of Cafe 1930 as he prepared for an appearance in the YouTube Symphony Orchestra (YTSO). The flute half of Cafe 1930 was later seen and heard from Nina Perlove playing along with the video that Celso had made. Now, thanks to YTSO violinist, Caeli Smith from Philadelphia, we get to hear Celso and Nina together live direct from the lobby of the Parker Meridan Hotel in New York City. After a full day of rehearsal, they still found the energy to meet in the lobby at midnight and, presumeably for the first time, play the duet together in real time. Caeli then joins Celso for an impromptu sightreading of Libertango.

Caeli, thanks for capturing the moment and best wishes for your YSTO debut tomorrow in Carnegie Hall. That moment is captured starting 2'25" into today's video.
